Pocahontas was out helping her people gather nourriture early one morning when Nakoma ran up to her. "You shouldn't be working since you've had those frequent dizzy spells." she advised. "Nakoma, I feel fine. Besides, the tribe could use all the help around here." Pocahontas reassured. "Okay, but Kekata's got a close eye on you." Nakoma replied. "If I get dizzy again, I'll take a break." Pocahontas promised. The reason behind the dizzy spells? Pocahontas was pregnant!
"So, have toi told anyone else about the baby?" Nakoma asked. "I've told Mulan." Pocahontas answered. Nakoma was alittle surprised. "Only Mulan?" she asked. "Yes. I'm pretty frightened about how Merida will react." Pocahontas answered. "C'mon, Pocahontas. I'm sure she'll be over the moon for you!" Nakoma stated. "I can only hope." Pocahontas replied doubtfully.
Pocahontas knew Merida's rebellious side REALLY WELL. Even better than Mulan did! "She's just like John." Pocahontas said. "That's because she'll be 17 in a couple months." Nakoma playfully joked. John came par the field. "You shouldn't be working." he stated. "I think it's time for me to take a break." Pocahontas said. John had kept a sharp eye on her since she got pregnant, just like Kekata.
"So, you've only told Mulan?" John asked. "Yes." Pocahontas answered. "Don't worry about how Merida will react. She's a free spirit. If she DID react harshly, she wouldn't DARE montrer it." John reassured. "Well, maybe you're right. I think I might write a letter to her." Pocahontas replied. She and John reached their little hut. "Let me assist you." John a dit sweetly as Pocahontas was about to sit down. Pocahontas smiled.
Later that afternoon, Pocahontas wrote the letter to Merida. She was nervous about mailing it. "Don't worry. She's your friend." John told her. She put the letter in the mailbox. "I still don't know John. Merida is so wild, like you, and that's why Shang hates her." she said. John let out a small chuckle. "That's because he's so serious all the time." he a dit half-joking.
"John, he despises Merida with a passion." Pocahontas proclaimed. John cuffed her face in his hands. "Pocahontas, I want toi to listen to me clearly on this. Shang WILL warm up to Merida. Yes, it may take alittle plus time, but he'll warm up to her." John reassured. Pocahontas put her arm in his as they walked back to their hut. *I'm so lucky to have him!* she thought as she beamed silently. She and John enjoyed the nice walk back as the wind blew lightly. She was still worried about how Merida would react, but with John par her side, she knew she could wait.
